(From Rochester lounges around in a smoking jacket on his day off, so Jack attempts to cook an omelet for lunch. Don arrives and Rochester sings the Lucky commercial (to the tune of "The Sunny Side of the Street") as the two do a soft-shoe.

Johnnie Ray's contract to appear on Benny's TV show arrives and Jack is horrified by his $10,000 fee. He storms over to Ray's home and offers him $250 instead.

Johnny sings "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone," and "Cry" for Jack and performance is so devastating, Jack is turned into a helpless bowl of jelly. Jack pays him $15,000.

At the end of the show, Danny Thomas makes a guest appearance to plug his show Make Room for Daddy.

First aired: November 15, 1953.
